Only by Death

Alone, lonely, lost, not found, watching, waiting, craving solid ground.

Quiet, silenced, sounds ever still, seeing, hearing what minds will.

Uneasy, restless, sleepless nights, weeping, wailing, mourning my love, my life.

One man, one woman, I thee wed, splintered, separated, only by death.

Awaken, arise, gentle spirit, troubadours, trumpets, a sojourn transcendent.

Sky, clouds, celestial heavens, crying eyes, spirit rise, soaring high, gone, love of mine.

Saying goodbye to the one you love

One Day One Spirit

How could I have known

God’s story that was told

Would make my life complete

Give peace and harmony?

***

Refrain:

One day, one spirit. 

God will call your name – listen, hear it.

After all the trials that you’ve been through

You’ll only have to say, I believe in you.

***

My sins were washed away,

A debt I can’t repay.

His pain on Calvary

To save a soul like me.

***

Refrain:

One day, one spirit. 

God will call your name – listen, hear it.

After all the trials that you’ve been through

You’ll only have to say, I believe in you.

***

Come set your spirit free.

Bow down on bended knee.

Profess your faith in Christ.

Redeem eternal life.

***

Refrain:

One day, one spirit. 

God will call your name – listen, hear it.

After all the trials that you’ve been through

You’ll only have to say, I believe in you.
